Now that you're a real life grownup, you can forego the "family-friendly" plans and treat Mom to more Mother's Day activities for adults this year. And that doesn't necessarily mean taking Mom out for bottomless brunch mimosas. (But if you do decide to go down that road, please know that you have my unwavering support.) I'm talking about treating Mom like an equal this Mother's Day — treating her like a friend. So why not give Mom a 24-hour break from responsibility, and treat her to a Mother's Day activity you can enjoy together, as grown adults?
1. Go Wine Tasting
My mum can't drink wine because she really can't handle her liquor, but if that's not an issue for your mum you should find a wine tasting to take her two. We have two free wine tastings every month on Thursdays, one at Young's Fine Wine in Sandyport and the other at Mahogany House, Lyford Cay. And best of all they're free!
2. Attend A Food Festival
We don't have a food festival happening this weekend, but how nice would it be to go to a cultural event together? If anyone wants to start this tradition, just know that I came up with the idea first, thanks 😜
3. Take That Vacation She Always Wanted
If it weren't such a bad time in the school year, I would totally take my mum away on holiday. I actually wanted to take her to Cuba for Mother's Day but it never worked out. My mum really wants to go to Missouri after seeing how much fun I had, so we may do that for Christmas. If you have the time, I'd suggest taking your mum away for the weekend somewhere real nice. And if the destination is too far, why not a staycation at a local hotel?
4. Take a Class Together
In 2008 my mum and I took a card-making class together. It was amazing! My parents had recently divorced so I loved that bonding time between us. The class isn't around any more, but whether it's Sip and Paint, Paint Your Own Pottery or even an exercise class, this time together is perfect for you and mum to learn more about each other and get better at a particular craft.
5. Mother's Day Brunch
There are a lot of brunches this weekend for Mother's Day with a lot of specials. My mum is going to Regatta at Baha Mar with her cousins on Sunday for brunch for a little girl's getaway. Treat mum to a nice meal for mother's day and give her the day off from cooking.
